On June 16 and 17 we will play two films from our archive as part of the HfG Open Air Cinema. With cult cinema, DJ and bar from the AStA we celebrate the reawakening of cinema, the HfG and last but not least the good old get together after two very hard years.
We're opening this website fresh with a bang: the Film.Forum Film Festival, which will take place on March 5 in the virtual Blue Salon. It's one of those online festivals, but it's going to be fun, there are super cool films involved and the super cool people who made them. Be there!
Finally, the Blaue Salon gets a new screen! The old, if you'll pardon the pun, somewhat puny 16 to 9 frame screen is retiring after nearly 20 years and we welcome a new 6 meter Cinemascope screen. A warm welcome!
The Blaue Salon is small but nice. It's nice that there's a large meadow in front of the HfG, where you can air out. That's what the AStA thinks every year, and so the supporting program of the annual exhibition, the Summer Show, always takes place on this lawn in mid-July. We contribute two films to this program, the first open air cinema in front of the HfG!
Together with the Institut Français and the Centre Culturel Franco-Allemand Karlsruhe we show in this film series, as perhaps the names of the institutions already reveal, cinema from France! There are always new films to choose from in a catalog and it's a bit like going to the video store in the past. Only in a French one.
After the cinema has always contributed only sporadic film contributions to HfG events since its founding in April 2016, we are now storming into the winter semester with our own film program for the first time.
